Giftedness and Learning Disabilities
In recognition of October as Learning Disabilities month, learn how giftedness can mask a learning disability
and vice versa. Evaluating students for their strengths and weaknesses can help identify abilities that are so strong as to indicate giftedness, or so weak as to point toward a learning disability. Special programs might need to be implemented for the gifted learning-disabled student. This site makes suggestions of teaching strategies for these students and how to approach some problems that the gifted learning disabled may encounter in the classroom. Help parents become advocates for their paradoxical children so they can understand their special needs.
